The debate over hands-free devices while driving continues, but now there’s more information that suggests it’s not safe. AAA East Penn’s Theresa Podguski says, a recent study shows it’s dangerous.
“Reaction time slows, brain function is compromised and drivers scan the road less and miss visual cues. So there is sort of inattention blindness. Even though we’re seeing things, our brain is not recording those things along the road.”
Podguski says, AAA partnered with the University of Utah to conduct the study. Podguski was a guest on the AM-Edition with Darryl Berger Tuesday morning.
